This is a beautiful all silk hostess maxi dress by Susan Small. It features a bold abstract poppy print in shades of red, green and brown with accents of pink. It has a V cross over neckline with a ruffle trim and it fastens with a row of diagonal looped buttons at the waist. There is a hidden strip of velcro inside the bodice as an additional fastening which we think may have been added at a later date. It has a deep inset waist band and the wrap skirt is rimmed with a ruffle which extends around the tulip hem.
Vintage items rarely conform to modern day sizings and the UK size we give is only a guide. You are advised to check the measurements carefully to ensure a good fit.
Approximately UK size: 10 but please check measurements
1970s / CONDITION: Very good - there is a small hand stitched repair to the lining where the ruffle meets the neckline. There is a little fading to the fabric at the armpits. There are some very pale marks about the skirt and a couple of pin head holes. All minor and needing close scrutiny when worn.
Please refer to our grading and sizing guides.
